Public Health

Healthy people, healthy communities
We are only as strong as the people within our communities, and that is why the department of Health & Social Development has a number of public health programs across our region.

The department’s public health programs focus upon disease prevention and promotion of health in Nunatsiavut communities. The Public Health Nurse, supported by other members of the Community Health Team, offers various services at the community level including immunizations programs, TB follow-up and awareness raising, sexual health promotion, HPV vaccination promotion and provision, communicable disease awareness raising, pandemic flu planning, rabies prevention (pet immunizations), and more.

For more information about Public Health in your community, please contact your local DHSD community office.
